STMA DUES AND ASSESSMENTS  
The vast majority of property owners have already paid their 2018 homeowner dues and lot clearing fees, if applicable, due on January 31st as well as their $100 assessment due December 31st.  Thank you for your prompt payment.  For those who may have forgotten, please be sure to pay as soon as possible.  Penalties and interest will begin to accrue.  Questions can be addressed to Debra Bordeaux at 910 579 5374 or administrator@seatrailma.com.

DRIVING SAFETY
As spring and warmer weather approaches, the roads in Sea Trail will be filled with walkers, joggers and bike riders.  Drivers are reminded to observe speed limits and be aware of the need to share the road.  Be sure to slow down and move over to accommodate pedestrians.  Walkers and joggers are also asked to be aware of vehicles and move to the side of the road to allow them to pass safely. Attention and awareness by all of us will help keep everyone safe.

FEBRUARY TGIF
The next TGIF will be on Friday, February 16th at 6 PM at the Pink Palace.  This is an excellent opportunity to socialize with your neighbors and meet new residents in our community.  Friends, visitors and house guests are always welcome.  Bring an hors d’oeuvre to share and your beverage of choice.  Water and ice are available.  Our hosts this month are Shawn and Aileen Synnestvedt and Kylee Vasina.

VACANT LOT CLEANUP
In last week’s email blast, I referred to a cleanup of a number of vacant lots prior to the spring bush hogging which will occur in May.  Questions about this can be addressed via email to Jim Stokes at jasjms47@gmail.comor John Donaldson at jdseatrail@atmc.net.

SEA TRAIL HOME SERVICES
Are you looking for a painter, plumber, electrician or just someone to check off a few items on your Honey Do List?  Looking in the Yellow Pages or one of those search engines like Google can be mind boggling and then it is hit or miss if they will show up, do the work to your satisfaction and/or are affordable.  So we have added a new category to our Newsletter section of the website: SEA TRAIL HOME SERVICES.  This resident to resident sharing might make these decisions a bit easier!  If you are looking for someone to do whatever it is you want done around your home or yard, just email newsletter@seatrailma.com:

  • State your specific request as to what your need is or exactly what you are looking for in help
  • Include your name and contact information (phone number or email address)
  • If someone knows a contractor who they have used and could recommend they will then contact you directly with the contractor information
  • It is now up to you to contact the person directly if you so choose

In the same way, if you have someone you have used to fix that dripping faucet, paint a ceiling, unclog a showerhead, you can put that information out there with your contact information.  If someone needs similar work done at their house, they will email or call you for the contractor information.
We are hoping that by sharing contractor information we can make chores a bit easier and complete any list hanging on all those refrigerators a bit easier.

Have a great week!
